PRESENTER FOR JULY IS: Attila Kapitany – “Botanical Gardens of Australia Tour” – featuring highlights and interesting surprises through a cactus and succulent collector’s eyes.
Every Australian state has botanical gardens with often very different plants in very different settings. Stunning images of interesting and even bizarre plants are highlights of this talk. Starting with a brief look at our Melbourne Botanic Gardens then onto Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane (Mt. Coot-tha), Darwin………
Also some excellent regional botanic gardens that would be a worthy addition to any traveller’s itinerary.
Australia’s eight capital cities and 150 regional botanic gardens attract 13 million visitors a year with 41% of Australian adults going every year. Botanic gardens are the second most visited places in the country after cinemas. Let Attila show you why, with his most unique and entertaining style also reflecting his strong interest in rare and unusual tropical plants, aside from his professional work with cacti and succulents.
Attila is a succulent expert and author of many popular books on the subject will be along with pictures to show, and knowledge to share. Get an autographed copy of some of his publications.
